An Affair of the Heart

“Doctrine is not an affair of the tongue, but of the life; is not apprehended by the intellect and memory merely, like other branches of learning; but it is received only when it possesses the whole soul, and finds its seat and habitation in the inmost recesses of the heart.”

– John Calvin, Institutes of the Christian Religion, Book Three, Chapter 4, p.447
